I have accumulated many personal reviews while listening to albums. My reviewing style is non-conventional and was only intended for myself. Sometimes I will only use one sentence to describe an album if I feel that is all that's required. Other times I will review an album while I'm still listening to it, leading to a song-by-song review of the album (bringing the size of the review to nearly dissertation-level). There are times when I will even come back to a review to add information that I didn't know when originally writing the review. The point is that I won't edit my reviews to make them more readable or conventional. My reviews are always a direct result of what I was feeling when I wrote them and I want to let that feeling come through.

Disillusion - Back to Times of Splendor [2004]

It's a love hate relationship I have with this. There are moments of greatness and the Progressive aspects add a level of depth to the material. However, it's let down by the reliance on Melodic Thrash as the main energy driver and the use of the stayed and popular Folk influences that crop up in the writing every once in a while. Even so, I can't despise it because it is genuinely catchy and fairly solid song writing.
